RE: How is the Ford (Class A) chassis supposed to handle?

I'll just add an opinion for when you are test-driving motor homes. I believe that a well-engineered and properly-maintained motor home should essentially handle and steer like a comfortable car. Even my HR still does, and you should expect that when you move into a class A. Miles

RE: Portable Ice Maker

I'm using ours right now. It's made by Igloo. We use it both at home and on the road in the RV. It works well, only cost about $125, and we would buy it again. Miles

RE: Do you crawl under your lifted coach

I drive my HR up on Rino Ramps. I have no worries about working under the coach. Miles

RE: Awning repair

The same thing happened to me about 2 years ago. I used Gorilla tape to fix it. The repair only took about 10 minutes. Looks OK and is still holding up with no problems. Miles

RE: Possible Engine Upgrades

I would also get a compression and leak-down test, along with a basic tune up. I believe that a stock 454 has enough power for a 34' motor home for average use. My HR has adequate acceleration and cruises comfortably at highway speeds. However, I don't tow with it, and when I drive it in the mountains I know that I'm going to wind up in second or even first gear. Miles

RE: Somedays just work out..

I could use some of those kind of days. Let me know if you find out how to make them happen. Miles

RE: Alaska, I'm just saying

You are saying that the Alaska Fish and Game Department has screwed up everything? Miles

Installing a heat shield and some insulation would help. Miles

RE: 1990 Triple E Brake Fluid Reservoir Access - Resolved

The Chevy chassis of my HR has similar problems with access to the master cylinder and reservoir. I measured out the location and cut an access hole in the floor right above the reservoir. I made a cover out of diamond plate with some insulation. The hole with the cover is right under the driver's floor mat so it is not even visible. It only took me a couple of hours and it dramatically increased my motivation to check my brake fluid on a regular basis, so it was well worth it. Miles

Which putty to use in an air conditioner?

I am overhauling one of my air conditioners. The manufacturer used a blue putty or clay-type substance to seal some of the passages in the sheet metal. I am hoping that somebody can tell me what this stuff is and where I can get it, or just in general what I should use for this purpose. Thanks for your help.

RE: Continued dirty fuel problems.

What you describe is like the carbon in a vapor canister. Miles

RE: Voltage Issue - '97 K2500 7.4L Suburban

It could be a problem with the dash unit gauge. The dash units are a one-piece assembly and you have to send them off to be repaired. I did it on one of my sons' GM vehicles. Good luck with your repairs. Miles

RE: Used RV Loans

We had no trouble getting a loan on our 1989 HR. Try a credit union. Miles

RE: How to get to the master cylnder of an 1983 southwind

I cut an access hole through the floor directly to the top of the master cylinder. It only took a few hours to cut the hole and make a hatch to cover it out of diamond plate. It dramatically increased my motivation to properly check the brake fluid on a consistent basis, so it was well worth it. Miles

RE: Refrigerator options

Opinions on these forums tend to be weighted towards replacing RV absorption refrigerators with residential AC units. But if you plan on doing a lot of dry camping, I would not recommend it unless you have a large battery bank or even a solar set-up. The absorption refrigerators can run on gas for days with very little power, that's why they are in RV's. If yours doesn't work, figure out why. It might just be the circuit board. If it's the cooling unit, you can buy a new or rebuilt one without having to buy a new fridge. I changed the cooling unit out on my fridge for a little over $300. Miles

RE: coil

Not sure. Funny that you should ask, as I am having the same problem with my tachometer right now and could use some guidance myself. Miles
